Brad Maynard Hates America

Another dude? This is the last time I let Adrian talk me into a blind double-date.

Courtesy of loyal Dong reader Raimster, we get this gem: Brad Maynard and Adrian Peterson (the Chicago one, not the amazing one) helped load pizzas as part of the Pizza4Patriots initiative to get a shitload of pizzas to Iraq by July 4th.

“When I got the call, I didn’t hesitate,” Maynard said. “For everything they’re doing over there for us, it pales in comparison. This is the least I could do for them.”

Yes, Brad, this IS the least you could do.

Let's think about what he actually did here: Pizza4Patriots made the pizzas. DHL delivered them. The punter put them on the back of a truck.

Man, he must really love this country.

A few words from Raimster himself:
Those soldiers use words like 'honor,' 'code,' 'loyalty...' they use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. Maynard uses them as a punchline. Those soldiers have neither the time nor the inclination to explain themselves to a punter who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom they provide, then helps load the back of a truck to deliver them pizzas. They'd prefer the punter just say thank you and go on his way. Otherwise, they suggest he picks up a weapon and stand a post.

In other news, I found this gem - a Brad Maynard blog? I have no idea, but it apparently didn't last that long. Here's hoping Brad (or whoever the hell that is) picks up his blogging post soon.
